Pochettino hopes for a new contract with Eriksen
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino called dynamic the situation connected with the negotiations with midfielder Christian Eriksen about a new contract.
Eriksen continues to prove his value to the team in this season and scored a magnificent goal in the victorious match against Everton (2:6) last Sunday.
The Spurs have been trying to link the future of the Denmark national team player with the club for several months, but unsuccessfully so far. Meanwhile, Christian’s current contract expires at the end of next season.
The media regularly connects the 26-year-old midfielder with a move to some of Europe’s largest clubs because of this situation, including Juventus, but Pochettino insists that the negotiations aren’t at a standstill, and a breakthrough can occur at any time.
Pochettino doesn’t know what decision the player will take, but hopes for a positive outcome of the negotiations, since Eriksen is very important for the club. Football is extremely dynamic and nothing can be said with 100% probability. However, Mauricio promised that he personally and the club as a whole would do everything in their power to keep the player at White Hart Lane.
